Watering the thirst for knowledge


It is a known fact that learning from our natural environment is retained for life. RDF schools implement this by visiting surrounding fields, lakes, institutions and natural resources. Such activities ensure that students get direct learning experience and enjoy the process. In Kalleda School, students on Class 3 were taken to the Akeru River to learn the concept ‘Sources of Water’. A single, day long visit enriched them in multiple ways. They observed animals that use the river as a water source. They understood the habitat of fish and other creatures in the river. They also learnt about various water bodies, seasonal changes, the properties of sand and the uses of water. Since environmental awareness is a core part of RDF’s classroom learning, the teacher also engaged them in a discussion on saving water, water pollution. Such is the power of learning through engaging thoughtfully with our natural environment.
